  1. Hi everyone As everyone all ready has heard we lost a great guy. Heath was truly a HELICOPTER PILOT...

Let HEATER have one more go.... please pass onto as many people as you can Jason Rand

  4. RIP to one of the pillars of rotary wing aviation in western Canada. He was admirable in skill, kindness, and personality. What awful news. Condolences to both his immediate family and his Yellowhead family. Baker

  6. If you ever get to see a low level fly by from one of those you’d be impressed. I worked for Transwest back in the day when they were in Chilliwack and when the did a fly by, it was pretty crazy. The GMC dealership next door spent some time turning off car alarms. They hated us!

  8. Condolences to all those affected and those knew the crew. Transport just release an emergency AD CF-2021-23 effective 5 July. Must be related to this incident.

  11. This is terrible news! My condolences to his Dad, other Family members, and the YHL Team! He used to come over to my place as a young boy, to talk about helicopters which he was as excited about as I was. When he earned his helicopter Pilot License it was awesome for him and he obviously progressed well. RIP Heath! Daryl

  16. Ahhh the incredible sound of the 214B!! One has just got to love the sound of two Bell Big Lifter blades under power and the Tail Rotor droning in cue!! What an awesome way to wake up 😊👍.

  17. I'm pretty sure that the "Engineer" is the Owner of Hunter Helicopters. Who runs from under the 500 to help. It is also Hunter's video system the captured the accident.

  19. I have been away for a while as well. I got tired of reading stupid things that cowards would say as they hide in anonymity. I say keep the forums but as Dan said, you post, you post under your real name. This can be a useful and informative place as well as a good place to keep in touch with friends. 412driver aka Rob Dyck

  20. I disagree that the forum should be taken down. I think that the members must use their real names forbthe profile as I believe that will stop the abuse we have seen here in the past. Dan Stewart
